The Philadelphia Eagles are officially out of the playoffs, and ESPN Monday Night Football announcers Joe Buck and Troy Aikman didn’t hide their criticisms of the Birds in the NFC wild-card round.

As the Eagles fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first round of the NFL playoffs, Buck couldn’t help but notice during the first half how many missed tackles were stacking up for the Eagles’ defense, once one of the NFL’s best.

Philadelphia Eagles eliminated in Wild Card loss to Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 32-9: Recap

After watching Philly’s defense dominate in 2022, the unit didn’t look quite the same after the departure of former defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon. A lot of the same pieces were still in place, in fact.

Aikman went even further to say he thought Philly’s body language made the team look like it didn’t really care about the football game. Ouch.

Aikman continued his harsh critiques into the second half, which didn’t get better for Philly.

The Eagles fading down the stretch was one of the more bewildering developments of the NFL season, and Buck and Aikman’s commentary helped identify why it’s been on the downward slope for Philly.
